== News

  • WLCG recommends setting update-crypto-policies --set DEFAULT:SHA1 (recommended by RedHat)
  • HEPScore23 will be implemented in APEL some time in March
  • ESG is testing ARC deployment for EGI Infrastructure Manager. Work on the runner is slower.
  • Paper for NeIC about ARC is planned. Perhaps a paper for CSBS (a journal) is also a good idea.
  • SSH submission work is ongoing, hopefully will be tested soon.
  • Info on supported operating systems needs to be updated in the documentation, also ARC6 vs ARC7.
  • RedHat/Fedora moves away from Bugzilla, perhaps we should do the same? To be investigated.

== Bugs

* Bug #4142 is ready for testing.
* ARC will be configured either with IGTF CA certs or system ones, not both, and symbolic links will not be recommended.
* Bug #4146 is accepted.

== Release

No blockers, if the CA certs are sorted out. We may have a beta soon. Documentation needs to be cleaned up. A meeting is needed to go through , possibly next week.

== Workshop 

The dates are still undecided: April 29-30 or May 2-3.

There are minutes attached to this event. Show them.
